Save the Date: Webinar "Financing wastewater infrastructures: tools, mechanisms and best practices for a sustainable future"

Dear Colleagues,

Join us for the webinar "Financing wastewater infrastructures: tools, mechanisms and best practices for a sustainable future" scheduled for Wednesday, 27 February 2019, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Nairobi time (EAT).

This webinar will discuss tools, mechanisms and best practices related to sustainable wastewater management, particularly focusing on wastewater infrastructures and the related aspect of financing. The speakers will elaborate on the challenges and opportunities of developing and upgrading wastewater infrastructures and will provide their expertise and examples on this topic.

To join the webinar, on the scheduled day and time, please use the following link: global.gotomeeting.com/join/420647045

The webinar is organized by the Global Wastewater Initiative (GW²I), a multi-stakeholder platform bringing together UN agencies, international organizations, governments, scientists, the private sector and non-profit organizations with the goal of information-sharing and cooperation for an effective and comprehensive response to the challenges posed by wastewater management.

The Global Wastewater Initiative (GW²I) is hosted by the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-Based Activities (GPA) of UN Environment, an intergovernmental cooperation mechanism that aims to prevent the degradation of the marine environment from land-based activities. Initially established to address nine source categories of marine pollution (sewage, persistent organic pollutants, radioactive substances, heavy metals, oils, nutrients, sediment mobilization, litter and physical alteration and destruction of habitat), the Programme has, since 2012, focused on marine litter, nutrient pollution, and wastewater. Together with its partners and through the Global Wastewater Initiative (GW²I), the GPA seeks to enhance the understanding of wastewater as a resource and works on various issues related to sustainable wastewater management including policy guidelines, technology, knowledge generation, capacity building, and awareness-raising.

Dear Riccardo,

Are the presentations and recording from your webinar available yet? They might be interesting for the forum readers, in particular for the participants in this discussion that was recently run by the India SuSanA chapter:
"Setting standards and financing waste water management in India (Thematic Discussion by SuSanA India Chapter, February 2019)"
forum.susana.org/setting-standards-and-f...hapter-february-2019

Going by the image chosen for your webinar, was your focus on large-scale centralised wastewater treatment infrastructure? Did you have a certain minimum in mind, e.g. treatment plants for more than 1 million people?

Regards,
Elisabeth
